The AIBs 2018 Event Partner 

Al Jazeera Media Network is a group of global broadcast channels and subsidiaries dedicated to delivering compelling and impartial news and media content that informs, inspires and engages with a focus on human issues.










The AIBs 2018 were hosted by Mark Barton.



Mark Barton has over 23 years of experience as a news anchor and broadcast journalist, and is Bloomberg Television’s longest serving presenter in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in History, Mark began his career as an intern at Bloomberg News in March 1995. Six months later, he was one of five founding journalists of Bloomberg TV’s European operations.

He has been integral in establishing Bloomberg Television as a global financial and business news network, anchoring all the network’s prime-time programmes, breaking and analysing the biggest global business, economic, financial market and geopolitical events of the past two decades. He’s interviewed world leaders, finance ministers, central bankers and CEOs. Among his personal career highlights are interviews with Bill Gates and the late Israeli leader Shimon Peres.

His professional interests range from politics to sport and film and his one professional regret is not yet reporting from the red carpet at the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood.

Mark has three small children and lives in London.
